HUD Secretary's Awards

The HUD Secretary’s Awards are presented annually to honor projects that exemplify excellence in five categories: affordable housing design, community planning, cooperative public/private efforts, healthy housing innovation, and historic preservation. The awards recognize projects that increase the quality of life for low- and moderate-income households.
